Not just a pretty face – Meet Sané van der Watt,

Not just a pretty face

Meet Sané van der Watt,

Third year SAICA trainee accountant at Newtons and resident fitness guru. Sané has been an inspiration to us all with the dedication and hard work she put into preparing for the NABBA Free State / Northern Cape Provincial Competition that took place on 16 September. Here she came 3rd and qualified for the SA’s in the Sportsmodel category which took place in Pretoria on 7 October where she placed 6th.

Well done Sané!

Heritage Day 2017


Heritage Day Celebrations

This year Newtons took Heritage Day celebrations to different level by hosting a Braaibroodjie Challenge!

The whole firm was divided into teams who each had to present a braaibroodjie to our judges, the partners. The judges were quite difficult to impress and scored the different teams efforts on presentation, taste and braai technique.

Congratulations to the Fire Lighters team who walked away with the title of “Braaibroodjie champions for 2017!”

Danie endures the desert and the dunes


The Walvis Bay endurance is the African Championships and this takes place every year at the end of August, this year it was their 21st year of existence. Riders from all over the world participated. Danie Saayman, a trainee at Newtons, represented the international barbarian team in this championship, where they competed against the South African and Namibian team. It is a 120km desert ride, and is considered one of the most challenging rides in the world. The ride starts at 4 o’clock in the morning and successful riders finish late afternoon. It was the 4th time that Danie completed this ride successfully, but the Namibian team unfortunately prevailed. It’s always an incredible privilege to ride Walvis Bay, and it’s one of the rides you can truly say, “TO FINISH IS TO WIN.”
